Annual peak load

The annual peak load corresponds to the maximum value of the respective load curve in a calendar year. The time stamp specifies the date and time when the peak value occurs in a calendar year.

Ambitious electrification targets, for example in the transport industry, contribute to a reduction in CO2 emissions. This can lead to an increase in electricity demand, which in turn requires an increase in electricity generation.

The minimum requirements for the electricity grid are defined in such a way that electricity transmission is guaranteed at all times, even at peak load. This guarantees a reliable power supply by means of a stable grid.
